The Newman Memorial Prize was an annual award of "books, scientific instruments, etc.", which was conferred on the Officer R.N., qualifying for Engineering duty, who scored highest in the Examination in Practical Engineering held on the completion of his original course of specialising in Engineering.

The prize was endowed by the interest earned by a Fund of about 400 pounds established in memory of the late Mr. Edward Newman, R.N., who died whilst serving as Chief Engineer of Portsmouth Royal Dockyard.[1]

It was not awarded for a number of years during the war, presenting the Admiralty in 1920 with a choice of how to proceed with the accumulated monies. The result seems to be that prizes were issued to men in different groups (Keyham vs. Greenwich).[2] There would be a similar confusion in 1925-26, resulting in a skipped year and a double award.[3]

Recipients

In 1939, an asterisk appearing after the name of an Engineer Officer in the Navy List indicated that he had won the award. N.B.: an asterisk after the name of an officer in the Military Branch indicated he had won the Beaufort Testimonial prior to creation of the Wharton Testimonial, and an asterisk after a Medical Officer indicated he had won the Gilbert Blane Medal.[4]
